An amphora (English plural: amphorae or amphoras) is a type of container of a characteristic shape and size, descending from at least as early as the Neolithic Period. Amphorae were used in vast numbers for the transport and storage of various products, both liquid and dry, but mostly for wine.
The Latin word derived from the Greek amphoreus (ἀμφορεύς), an abbreviation of amphiphoreus (ἀμφιφορεύς), a compound word combining amphi- (“on both sides”, “twain”) plus phoreus (“carrier”), from pherein (“to carry”), referring to the vessel’s two carrying handles on opposite sides.
Amphorae varied greatly in height. The largest stands as tall as 1.5 metres (5ft) high, while some were fewer than 30 centimetres (12in) high – the smallest were called amphoriskoi (literally “little amphorae”).
